Types of Batteries – Various types of dry cell batteries include alkaline, nickel, cadmium, lithium, nickel metal hydride, iron, zinc carbon, and silver, as well as AA, AAA, C, D, and 9-volt. In order to prevent short circuiting, isolate batteries by placing each one in a separate plastic baggie or tape the terminals on the battery.
Battery Recycling - You can reduce the amount of hazardous substances released in to the environment from used batteries by recycling. Our goal is to facilitate the collection and recycling of rechargeable batteries so that heavy metals can be properly recovered rather than being released into the environment and leaching into the water system. By recycling all battery types, even when toxic heavy metals are not present, the reuse of reclaimed materials means that less mining is needed to obtain raw materials
